This quote made me think so much it is later in the evening than I expected! First & foremost, I try to live, love, listen & speak with patience, grace & humility. The jist is do I practice pretense, dependence, defense & / or offence?
- Am I pretentious?
- Am I dependent?
- Am I defensive?
- Am I offensive?
I have decided to take all of this in small bites of time instead of monthly, annually… I thought has just today been a positive day? Then I laughed remembering another little tidbit about a prayer giving thanks for God’s guidance ~ I remember it something like this but am putting in my thoughts about the quote…
“Thank you God for today & I was realistic, grounded, free thinking, accepting, open-minded, kind & gracious to others. Thank you God for being my support Thank you God for allowing me to live, love, listen & speak your truth. And now I have to get up out of this bed & start my day!”
So often this is the way I wish it was! I could start in reverse & go “without” all the issues that pile up during the day. Add up a day + a month + a year + a past of negative… Give God the Glory as he is as forgiving as we are repentant!
My goal is to LIVE in the moment, LOVE through a giving heart, LISTEN with my mouth shut & SPEAK softly!
